This segment originally aired on the September 22nd, 2013 episode of Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV. The United States has fallen a long way in recent years — we’re shipping our jobs overseas, denying healthcare to the needy, and we’re constantly looking for a new war.  The closer you look, it becomes clearer that we’re headed down the path of becoming a banana republic. Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantonio talks about this with attorneys Mike Burg and Niall McCarthy.
